⚡About Amber
Amber is a new way to buy power, designed for a world powered by renewable energy. We give customers direct access to the real-time wholesale electricity price as it varies every 30 mins and the technology to shift more of their energy usage to the times when cheaper renewables are available in the grid. It’s a cheaper way to buy power and the fastest way for Australia to reach 100% renewable energy.

We are growing rapidly and have thousands of customers who love what we are doing and a great product that will play a significant role in driving Australia towards a renewable future. We are backed by Australia’s leading VCs including Square Peg Capital, Giant Leap (Impact Investment Group) and Black Sheep Capital. We’re now at a critical moment in taking the business to real scale as we disrupt a huge market for the better.

We’re committed to building a diverse and inclusive workplace and a great culture of people who love coming to work to build a better world. You’d be a part of a rapidly growing team of 50+ with expertise across energy, technology, marketing, and operations.

💻 About the Role
As the Partnerships Marketing Manager you will be taking ownership of partner marketing, helping to build our marketing engine to rapidly take Amber to 100,000+ customers. You’ll start with leading the relationship with our core strategic partner CommBank, and then expand to contribute to Amber’s outcomes with additional strategic partners and partner programs.

A large portion of Australians are CommBank customers and the partnership is a significant opportunity to bring the CommBank audience on the journey to 100% renewables at scale, helping fast-track Australia’s sustainable transition as a result. You’ll lead large Amber & CommBank campaigns and programs, managing end-to-end from announcement, to build and launch, to measurement and reporting. The partnership encompasses above-the-line awareness & education initiatives through to conversion-focused promotions with compelling and unique offers. These offerings include affordable financing options to accelerate adoption of EVs, home batteries, solar, and smart devices - advancing towards the future of the electrified and automated green home.

Alongside the CommBank partnership, you’ll continue to develop the core vision and strategy to scale up more partnerships across the marketing funnel, with the goal to strengthen the Amber brand and drive user acquisition. You’ll prioritise across proactive co-marketing opportunities and inbound partnership offers to identify the right partners for maximum impact. You’ll evolve all partnerships and partner types over time to increase contribution to the marketing mix and to drive the strongest return.

You’ll report directly to the CMO and will be a key member of the marketing team.
